The press of advertising which com pelled us to bring out yesterday for the second time a six-page paper shows that the prosperity which we congrat ulated ourselves on last week was not a spasmodic thing ; but was the out growth of the confidence with which The Jkrsky City News is regarded by the business public. By a remarkable conjuncture of circumstances, yesterday was one of the newsiest days that this city has known since we began publication. The ample space at our disposal en abled us to do justice to this, and thus it happens that while we had rather more space taken up by advertise ments than the Evening Journal, we ■were yet able to leave it in the gloom iest kind of shade in the matter of news. We desire to draw the attention of the reading public to the following list of important news stories which ■were fully presented in The Jersey City News, and of which the Even ing Journal did not have a single •word:— "Rochk Will Contest."—An ac count of the steps taken by Mr. James Roche to contest the election of Mr. Bruggemann as Pirector-at-Large. "Money or Your Life."—An ac count of the sensational attack on a lady in her own house by a burglar armed with a sandbag and pistol. "Almost a Catastrophe."—The corralling of a horse car between the gates of the Newark avenue crossing while a train was approaching. "Jersey Colors Traii,."—The amusing story of a drill by colored girls. "Broke the Boy's Head."—A probable murder by a watchman in West Hoboken. "Found Their Son Dead."-—The sad story of a missing Hoboken boy's fate. "Anti-L-Road Meeting."—A re port of the proceedings of protesting Bergen citizens. In addition to these "clean beats" we had the best acoount of the Fourth Ward meeting, the Trades Assembly meeting, the Gluecklich inquest and the McGrane suicide. All our regular features—the Wo men's Column, the State News, Per gonals, Sporting and Society News and Gossip were unusually full and interesting. A gentleman stepped into the office to say the paper was the best newspa per that had ever been published in _Tal>OAV Ο if V Wt» Itul ïaira V» r\ «τοο »i»K4 The public thought so, too, fornear ly three hundred copies more than usual went over the counter. Black and tan society circle^ in this city are in mourning over the outcome of the " grub-sling«rs ' " parade and competitive drill at the Zion M. E. Church on Thursday night. They , should organize wash board calisthenics and use up the dusky belles of New York in a soapsuds sociable. Sixteen Against Sixty Thousand. Just sixteen persons represented the opposition to the "L" road pro ject at the meeting on Thursday evening. They said there was wide spread discontent among property owners; but they did not explain why it did not materialize. The sixteen, however, were quite resolved that they would fight the road in the Board of Aldermen aud in the courts. That is just about the lize and ehape that the opposition to such projects usually assumes. Here are sixteen men who do not like the thing for purely personal, and in some j cases purely cross-grained reason». : The rest of the public are of no ac ; count. They may walk if they will, but the sixteen will exhaust all the resources of the law's delay to assert i their alleged rights. The allegation that they represent ! sdme fabulous number of persons, ; who lie in reserve, is pure poppycock so to speak. We believe that those ! who come forward represent them selves, and that everyone who has a kick to make will be pretty sure to step up and make it. Hut let us push on the improve ment with sucii haste as we may. Well, the cold weather is upon us, and we guess the business men are not sorry. Nothing hurti like the rain, and we have had a surfeit of it : this fall. Today is a great overcoat day. We recommend those who are not supplied to scan the advertising I columns of our great six-page paper of yesterday. Tariff reform bail about as much to do with Foraker's defeat in Ohio as ballot reform had to do with the election of Abbett in New Jersey.— Fredonian. Quite so, about half the fight. It looks like G rover Cleveland and Leon Ab bett in If92.—Fredonia.n Not a bad ticket on its merits, but New York and New Jersey are too close together. Our own preference ί is for Abbett and Carlisle. Senatorial Obstructionists—A Re publican Plot Unveiled. Our only competitor had a fit of wisdom yesterday. It employed a mind reader and told us everything Governor Abbett intended to do when he became Governor, and then gave us its own version of the probable course of the obstructive Republican Senate which the railway money has saddled on the State. First of all it says:— Governor Abbett in his inaugural will recom mend the passage of a drastic law to tax rail road corporations. It is probable that the House bill drawn for that object will be such a radically unjust measure that the Republicans will prolest against some of its features and recommend modification. If they do, the Democrats, with one accord, will shout, "There, didn't we tell you so. The Republicans are In favor of the railroads against the people!" It is probable that the Republican Senate will present a bill which will amply cover the case, and it will be rejected on the ground that it is not sufficiently sweeping. Then the Democrats will say, "We passed a good bill to tax railroads and the Republican Senate refused to concur in it Give us both houses next time and we will show you." Of course all this talk about Gov ernor Abbett is mere twaddle. No body knows just what lie will do. It may be doubted if he knows himself yet just how he will proceed. It is only certain that the State will be safe in his hands, and that the interests of the whole people will be asserted in his entire policy. But, coming from a dyed-in-the-wool Republican paper, this revelation as to the course which the bosses of the Republican party will order their Senators to pursue is interestino· and vnliinhlp AVe pointed out some time ago that it would maintain an attitude of ob struction to all popular reform meas ures. But we did not expect to see the design proclaimed with such cyni cal frankness by a Republican paper. It almost looks as if the accusation which we see in every Republican newspaper in the State were true, viz: that the Evening Journal has gone back on the party and is systematic ally betraying it. This is a family quarrel, with which we have no concern. We only allude to it in passing, and we hasten back to observe that the nefarious scheme of Senatorial opposition is to be ex tended to the matter of ballot reform. The livening Journal explicitly says so in these words:—"The same tactics will be adopted in relation to ballot reform." Thus early we lay the facts before the people of the State. We urge them to watch the contest which is to be waged at Trenton in the early part of next year. The vicissitudes will be the issues in the elections of State Senators next fall, and it behooves them to judge what party will work in their interest, and then cast their votesiaccordingly. Thk individual who is down on re porters was abroad on Thursday night. He made himself uncomfort ably conspicuous at the Bergen anti L road meeting. AVe presume he will call on the editor today to kick be cause his name was left out. That is what he usually does. It took our only competitor over twenty years to get to a six page paper. AVe have now brought out two in our llrst nine months. AMUSEMENTS. The sale of feats for Mr. \E. H. Sotliern's engagement at the Academy of Music next week already promises well and shows that this young comedian is well remembered here. In obedience to a widely expressed desire Mr. Sothern revives for this en gagement his pretty comedy of "The Highest Bidder" instead of "Lord Chumiey," which he produced here last year, although he still holds both play's in his repertoire, and, in fact, has but just finished a revival of the latter at the Lyceum Theatre, New York, where upon its second pre sentation it ran for nearly three months. Mr. Sothern is still a very young man, having just passed his thirtieth birthday, and to have at tained so prominent a position in the dramatic world so early in life speaks volumes for his future. His friends, too, say that his great prosperity and its attendant financial results have not affected him at all unpleasantly, and he is not yet a victim to that almost fatal theatrical disease, "big head." Mr. Sothern will play "The Highest Bidder" at every perform ance during the week, including Wednesday and Saturday matinees. The successful engagement that Cor.'i Tanner luis been playing ut the Academy of Music (hiring the week will be brought to a close tonight. Hur matinees have attracted large numbers of ladies, with whom she ι appears to be a great favorite. PERSONALS. i Burlington county is to have a law library to j be selected by Judge Garrison. The annual convention of the Women's Na j tional Indian Association will be held on Wednes day and Thursday, November 20 and 21, at the Third Presbyterian Church, tee Rev. Dr. Holli fleld's, Broad street, opposite Green street, New ark. There will be a number of interesting speakers, who will present the work of the asso ciation in a clear and attractive manner. A debating society in Bordentown will wrestle with the subject: -"Which is the more useful, a horse or a cow?" During a freshet some stock escaped from a private pond into the Passaic river, and now the river is alive with carp. Some of them are very large, but they are too shy to bite. Don't throw your old rubber boots and shoes away. Save them for the agents of the chewing gum manufactories, who are now buyiDg them up in all parts of the country. Pulverized rub ber boots and overshoes, flavored with vanilla, strawberry and other extracts, make the nicest chewing gum. The fanners in the west end of Englewood township complain of the taxation for the sewers and local improvements in the village. Tr» ITcanna «Imnot «ι«η in mllilln Ufa fo connected with the newspaper press or has be gun a political career as a newspaper man. In the United States lawyers have largely monopo lized the offices, but they are frequently forced to divide honors with the editors. The election of Colonel Brown to the State Senate calls atten tion to the good fortune of the conductors of the New York Daily Neica. That paper was founded by Hon. Gideon J. Tucker in 1855. and his name stood at the head of the editorial page till he was elected Secretary of State, in 1857; and he was afterward three times Surrogate. Mr. Tucker was an earnest believer in trade union ism, and placed the composing room of the paper in the hands of Gus Failing, Charles Colburn, George La Faye and Mc31anns, when there were but two New York dailies paying the union scale. Benjamin Wood succeeded Mr. Tucker, and was elected to the State Senate and twice to Congress. Colonel Brown came to the paper a few years ago, and now fortune favors him. Mr. J. Frank Fort, who is making extensive alterations to his house in East Orange, has moved to Newark for the winter. Four years ago Mr. J. C. Exton, of Union Farms, made a small lake on his farm, and stocked it with about one hundred German carp. Being desirous of knowing how they were pro gressing, week before last he opened the outlet to draw off the water, which took about a week. On the evening of the 5th the water was all out and the fish collected in a large box, placed near the outlet. The result was most satisfactory, for there were thousands of them, many of which weighed six or eight pounds. The largest were taken and put in a spring house, while the small ones were returned to the lake, which was soon replenished with pure cold water from the springs near by. A number of large eels were also captured. Mr. Exton will also place some catfish in the lake. Mary Reagan, an employe in the ornamenting room at the Singer factory. Elizabeth, was ac cidental burned earlv Friday evening. Owing to pressure of orders the room is run overtime and Miss Reagan, after working an hour longer than the usual quitting time, was preparing to go home. She was using benzine in cleansing her hands, and a gas fixture suddenly fell, the tlame igniting the benzine. Instantly the blaze flashed up, and before it could be extinguished Miss Reagan's hands and arms to the elbows were frightfully burned. The Camden boys, while serenading Howard Ellis and his bride on Monday evening, used a 1 arge bell belonging to Patrick Haughey in the ceremony. Owen McKenna, one of the finest in lue mo cuiupuii.v , νια& a»aticueu iiuui uia siuiii bers, and hQaring the bell hastily sprang from his bed. After some difficulty in getting into his clothes, owing to the excitement of the moment, he started on double quick time for the fire house, which he found all in darknass, and discovered the bell was ringing in the direc tion from which he had come. Owen turned his steps homeward a wiser but sadder man. Harry Watson, of Salem, was struck by a loco motive near Penionville a few days ago. He was gunning and had ordered his dog, an intelligent spaniel, to charge. The dog did so on the track, and would not move in spite of the approaching train. Mr. Watson ran to pull him off and was struck by the engine. His chiu was badly cut and the flesh of his left arm crushed. He is now able to be out. * Report says that Senator Martin WyckofTa horse made the fastest time on record, between Junction and Asbury, on the afternoon of the Are at his place, after he was made to under stand that it was something besides brush burn ing. Three of New Jersey's Governors have been re-elected—Haines, Parker and Abbott. Kx Oovernor Newell ran a second time, but was defeated. Greenville's Thieving Hoodlum·. Greenville storekeepers have been com plaiuing of late of the depredations of a gang of young hoodlums In that district. Saloons and grocery stores receive con siderable of their attention to the de pletion of their tills and the damage of theproperty. This unappreciated atten tion is bestowed at a time when no one is present to acknowledge it. The grocery of Mrs. Selong, at No. 370 Ocean avenue, was visited ten days ago. A saloon run by Frank Selong, at Ko. 30G Ocean ave nue, was entereu, by means of the fan light, night before last. The police were notified and Detective Holtic put on the care. He found a hat in the place which was subsequently identified as the prop erty of fourteen-year old John Sheehan. Sheehan was arrested, but denied the charge. Later he admitted breaking into the "place and implicated others, for whom the police are now searching. Justice Wanser held Sheehan for trial. A Very Queer Blunder. William Hallisey, an aged man, was arraigned yesterday in the Court of Spe cial Sessions on a charge of assault and battery. When called to plead he snkl he had already been tried tor the offence. .Judge Lippincott said he thought that was true, and the Indictment was exam ined by the District Attorney and found to have been made in May during the last term of court. The Prosecutor said he was not certaiu that Hallisey had not been tried, and the Clerk's book had no record of a trial. He consented to per mit Hallisey to go on his own recognais ance until the matter could be investi gated. Tills "Will be Worth Attending. An illusarated lecturo and description view of the historic battlefield of Gettys burg will be given in the Tabernacle next Thursday evening. The lecture will be given by Captain James 'Γ. Lone, who participated in it. He will be assisted by Professor W. E. Seigler, the experienced oxygen-hydrogen light operator, who will exhibit three hundred views of the battle field and will pay special attention to the sections of the field in which the New Jersey regiments were engaged. The lecture will be given under the auspices of Henry Wilson Post No. 13, U. A. R. A Sucoes.sful Service. The evangelistic service at the Y. M. C. A. rooms Thursday night was very successful. There were eight enquirers at the close of the meeting. Since the police interfered Sunday night with the preliminary open air meeting the singers now announce the opening of tbé evening meetings by singing out on the second j story veranda. The meeting tonight ! promises to be interesting. i WOMEtf AT OXFORD. te.y re a nu 01? pu υ ait ess—tuai n 1,1 F Ε A.\J> WOttki. — I I Girl and Novel Squelclietl by an Irntc Pajm-The Popularity of the Hang —A New Idea lit Chair*. Tne association for the higher educa tion of women lti Oxford has just cele brated its tenth year o£ organization, uriil ι is well pleased with the progress made. I There are now three halls for women students in Oxford—Lady Margaret, Somerville aijd St. Hugh's. The life at the different halls is the same in its broad outlines, although each one has its special characteristics. Each student has one room, which is used at night for a sleep ing room and in the daytime for a sitting room and study. The daily routine at the college begins with the chapel bell at eight o'clock; breakfast at quarter oast eight. Students linger in the library to chat and read the daily papers for halt an hour or so after breakfast, but by half past nine o'clock most of them have gone off to read in their rooms, or to lectures in the town. These are given either at the rooms of the association for women's educatiou, or at the men's colleges. The examina tions at Oxford are known as "pass," or "honors." The standard of the former is estimated to correspond with that of "moderation." The "honors" examina tions either aim at a standard analogous to the men's honor examinations—as in the case of literature and modern lan guage—or are identical with tliem, as in natural science and modern history schools. Most of the teaching for the "pass" examinations and £01· the two sity lecturers aud tutors at the association rooms. For the last four named "honor" examinations, the women students attend lectures at the men's colleges, and read privately with university tutors. Honor students are admitted to the Bodleian library. Lunch at the halls is an informal meal, which begins at one o'clock. The after noon is mostly devoted to walks, tennis, boating; on the Irwell, and other amuse ments. Four o'clock is tea time, and the festive time of the day in the halls. Tea parties are frequent, and guests come from without as well as from within the halis. Ac such entertainments "shop" is tabooed by etiquette. The time between tea and dinner is given to work. An other half an hour after dinner is devoted to social purposes; after that comes even ing prayers, and work begins again, to be carried ou for a period long or short, ac cording to the discretion of each student. Cocoa parties at ten o'clock is a form of dissipation that finds favor with the Ox ford girls. The studeuts at the different halls meet at lectures, and they have a debating society which holds fortnightly discussions alternately at Souifjrville and Lady Margaret halls. There is also a tenuis match between them every term. Each hail has its own societies—literary, musical, political and historical.— Huston Traveler, Girl and Novel Suppreesed, A certain society young woman of Washington is gossiped about in an un pleasant manner. She is the daughter of a prominent official, has borne an excel lent reputation and is beautiful, but she has become possessed of an ambition to shine as an erratic novelist. She has studied Amelte Rives carefully, and has devoted some little time to Miss Abi Jackman, who denuded her brain before the public in such an unblushing man ner. She had her work almost com pleted, and if it had ever reached book form the covers would have fairly quiv ered with passion, She did not pause at the limit—-she stepped completely over It. In fact, she went so far as to employ two words that are not in the dictionary. The work was complete, and it was read by a publisher, who agreed to spring the sensation on the public, but the young woman's parents began an investigation just in time to save" her, temporarily at least, from a very unenviable notoriety. Her father could "not be persuaded that all the time she spent in her room was doA'oted to social correspondence aud her toilet. Finally he found out the truth, and there never was a more surprised parent Lutin m'. χ nu wuuk \va» sup pressed in its incipioncy and the young lady is in a fair way to receive the benefit of a protracted European tour under rigid cnaperonage. The Feminine Bans:. Probably no fashion or fancy has taken so firm a hold on the' feminine portion of the population as has the bang, which is now celebrating the eighteenth year of its reign. In the face of ridicule and criticism it has held Its own since 1871, when in some inexplicable manner it made its ap pearance upon certain fashionable brows. In a short time all classes had adopted the white fringe, as it was then styled by the newspapers. The general adaptability to almost any type of face accounts for its popularity, and although decried and caricatured it has never lost its hold upon the female heart. First came the severely straight fringe across the forehead, be coming to so few maidens. Then the curied bang was introduced not to take its place, but to share its popularity. Montague bangs came next, with their suggestion of soap, water and bandoline. Then the ''Langtry," introduced by the Jersey Lily, necessitated u sacrifice of all the long locks on the crown of the head, whereas heretofore only a short fringe had been worn on the forehead. The Kuseian bangs, short and sharp pointed, vied with tlie saucer-shaped,until Airs. Cleveland changed the entire com plexion of events by wearing the pompa dour bang, made so popular by her first photographs, which were sent broadcast over the land. Girls with broad, clear foreheads at once brushed back their hair retaining only the soft rings of hair on the side, a la Cleveland. Now that the fair young mistress of the White House has been deposed, something new in the hair dressing line has been brought into fash ion. It is here, and evidently here to stay. If you should happen to meet a girl on the fashionable thoroughfare with a circular patch on her forehead, think not that she lias been wounded in a pugilistic encounter, or if she be a brunette, that she is carrying a small stove-lid directly over the bridge of her nose, but renlem ber t-hit this is the very latast fad In bangs.—Truth. ^ The I.ate»t lu Chairs. The latest thing of all in the way of chairs is the parlor suite made out of real Wilton rugs, much stuffed, or French tapestries may be employed for the cover ing instead. Plush, you know, has quite gone out of use for such purposes. ainty French tables, with three or more aut'lves, inconceivably ngnt, are a novelty; the shelves are shaped like sheila, in sections, and the legs take apart like tishing rods. French cabinets, too—you see the Parisian is in favor at present—will be all the rage. Some of them are astonishingly elaborate, with gold plate, brass inlaid veneering and hand painted paneling. — Washington Star. ' Ice in the Sick Room. A saucerful of shaved ice may be pre served for twenty-four hours with the thermometer in the room at 90degreesF., if the following precautions are observed —Put the saucer containing the ico in a soup plate and cover it with another. Place the soup plate thus arranged on a good, heavy pillow, and cover it with another pillow, pressing the pillows so that the plates are completely imbedded in them. An old jack plane set deep is a most excellent thing with which to shave ice. It should be turned bottom upward, and the ice shoved backward and forward over the cutter.—Mciiical Tincn. Lead* h Du Al life. Miss Jeanette Gilder, the editor of the Critic, leads, as it were, a dual life. At home and in society she is entirely fem inine, and just what any other clever, eweet tempered woman would l)â. She τ " Ι is passionately load o£ children, and is ! devoted to the pretty infants of her I brother. But in her office he.r whole ! manner chancres. She is a thorough I woman of business, and during the office I hours works very hard. She suits her , attire to her work, and as the feminine dress cramps the neck, throat and arras, I she has adopted a costume almost entire ! ly masculine. On the street in winter j she wears a long, dark ulster, with a white handkerchief folded under the ! edges. in her office she wears dark I skirts, kilted plainly to the waist, with ! no overdress: the waist is a half fitted I sack coat, with the cut at the throat the same as that of a man, and with the same I pockets. Under it is a close fitting waist coat, in which are watcîx and chain; a plain stauding collar and cravat are en tirely masculine in tone. She even wears wide cuffs with heavy lin It buttons and a seal ring. Her brother, Richard Watson Gilder, is the editor of the Century.— Chicago Herald. Tlie Women of Tonqatn. Both men and women in Tonquin wear their hair long and twisted up into a kind of chignon on the top of the head. It is, of course, always lanky and jet black. The dress is of the most simple kind. Tlie men wear α loose jacket and trous ers, and the women a loug, straight shift reaching from neck to lieels. The Anna mite man is a very poor creature, and it is only among the upper classes tiiat one sees occasionally a well formed or hand some face, with some elevation or dignity of expression. The women are much bet ter looking, and would often be pretty except for the stained mouth and teeth, which renders them horrible tonEuro pean eye. But in figure they are much the most favored of any seen "in the East, and in the course of a walk in Hanoi you may meet a dozen who are straight enough and strong enough and shapely enough to serve as a sculptor's models. Their native dance is a burlesque of the Japanese, to the accompaniment of a fiddle six feet long. The few women you see with clean mouths and white t-eetn are almost sure to be the mistresses of Europeans. Mustaches in the Pulpit. By the kindness of two of my- nieces, daughters of the late Β. B. Hotchkin, D. D., your former Philadelphia corre spondent, I noticed a short article in your issue from the pen of the Kev. Sylvester Cowles. He says:—"Deafness lias come so that I cannot hear common preaching unless I sit near the speaker and see his lips move, and then, if he is half barbar ian and don't shave his upper liD, I can't understand much except words which have b or ρ in them that bring his lips together." Now my .own case much resembles his. I am two years his junior and very deaf. I usually take a second seat from the pulpit, and if the speaker has a clear voice and no hair on the upper lip, I can keep the run of the discourse very well; but if he wears a mustache X get no food. I am glad there is one man who has the courace to bring the subject up before the people. I personally know ol cases where candidates for good pul pits have been rejected because of tne mustache on the upper lip. To many in the house of God it looks cranky, and is distastef 1. No minister has any right to despoil his voice by forcing it to pass through a lock of hair before it reaches the ears of the audience.—Evangelist. A Low Cost Dress. Today I met a lady friend who is able to buy the handsomest dresses in New York, and I saw that she wore a neat ladylike gown of dark gray flannel cloth, trimmed with black braid, and made in a neat and simple but very taking style. I fell in love with the dress, and she told me that she had made it herself and that braid, buttons and material had cost her just 52.00, aud she enumerated the arti cle, and I found it so. Thwe are a dozeu of fall materials that are all wool and which will make up very pretty suits from twelve to twenty-live cents per yard. Of course a dressmaker would have run the price up, but she said that she en joyed the making of her dress.—Olive Harper. Low Necked Dresses. Whether fashion is a matter of simple impulse or definite development its power, either positive or in resistance, is altogether beyond question. Perhaps, of all other instances which prove this, none could be more convincing than the way in which necks have been stolidly indifferent to attacks of any kind what ever, careless of examples to the con trary, and defiant of express degrees in opposition to them. Tradition tells how young Louis XIII. once flung a glass of wine into the neck of a lady too con n^ll/UUUS AU HVl UUVUl Vt iUVO. VI II-, »uu in like manner one of the pastors of our early settlements, Father Galitzin, of Eb deusburg, Pa., having noticed a woman in his congregation in a low necked dress, presently, in his parade down the aisle singing asperges and sprinkling the as sembled peuple with holy water, he dashed a liberal supply where he thought her dress ought to have been, and passed grimly on. Uharlotte Elizabeth, of Bavaria, second wife of Louis XIV., began to cover her own neck with gauze or lace in summer and with minever in winter, and then ull snow white marble, alabaster and other kinds of skins were for a time aeclipsed by the "Palatines," as the coverings were known from her being danghter to the Elector Palatine. The name in England seems to have been reserved for thicker tipnets, and the thinner sheller to have been called the modesty piece, subse quently reduced to the tucker, "a certain female ornament." Anne, humdrum Queen of England thought she may have been, was a better woman, bent upon preventing impropriety, and so extremely solicitous for strict decorum that she was hurt because Boliugbroke once, when summoned in a hurry, came into the royal presence in a Ramellise or tie wig instead of a full dress wig.—Domestic Monthly. The Late Martin Kelly. At t he regular mooting of Court General La fayette. Λ. O. F. of Α., held at Kaiser's Hall, Wednesday. November 13, 1S8J, a committee was appointed to draft resolutions of comlol enee upon the death of the late brother, Martin Kelly. The following are the resolutions:— Whereas the Almighty Omnipotent God has seen tit to remove from our miust oui· beloved brother, Martin Kelly: Whereas, by h Ν sudden death, thi-ι Conrt has lost a worthy and energetic member and one in whom they possessed an able advocate and benevolent brother.

An Kntertalnment on tlie liiU That Was Luricoly Attended. There were but few of the prominent German-American families of the Heights unrepresented in the large and respecta ole audience that attended the annual en tertainment by the Ladies' Society, Arion, given last evening at Kessler's Hall. The entertainment was In aid of the fund for the poor, mid it was both admir ably presented nzid liberally patronized. Mrs. Leonhardt, the president; Mrs. C. Witsch, secretary, and Mrs. A. Zoeller, treasurer, together with Mrs. Pattberg and other ladies of the society, managed the entire affair most satisfactorily, and the Singing Society Arioti rendered use ful aid. The exercises commenced with a zither trio by Prof. Eberle and two of his pupils, with piauo accompaniment, wnich was liberally applauded. Mrs. Vou Etterlein gave a declamation in Ger man, and was encored. Then came the parade and drill of the Enterprise Cadets, composed of twenty-six rosy cheeked vouiig women, under command of Miss Ν uber. The cadets wore a pretty uniform of blue and white and carried guns. Cap tain Fraulein Κ uber woro a neat uniform of white trimmed with gold and carried a sword, with which she gracefully saluted the audience. The drill, includ ing marching, wheeling, fancy move ments and the manual of arms, loading and firing would have done credit to a veteran military company, and the girl soldiers were vociferously encored.

A story has been current in Newark to the effect that James Smith, Jr., and Gottfried Krueger had buried the hatchet aud accepted the olive branch extended by Assemblyman-elect Charles Trefz and Frank M. McDermit. and had even gone so far as to enter into a business partner ship with the latter in Sunday Standard Company. It was said that a reorganiza tion of t he paper had been effected, that a capital stock of $50,000 had been paid up, and that James Smith, Jr., was to be president of the company, Gottfried Krueger treasurer, Frank M. McDermit, counsel, aud Charles Trefz and Frederick Leonard, directors. james Smith, Jr., accompanied by his father, was driving down Broad street this morning when intercepted by a New ark Evening New* reporter. "I know nothing about it," said Mr. Smith, laughing. 'Ί guess I had better , solicit my friends to join the new com pany. There's Billy Brown; he may have caused this thing to be published by way of a joke on me. Ask Brown." Mr. Smith chirruped to his steed and drove off. Mr. McDermit said that the report was as true as gospel. '•We intend to erect a mammoth build- I ing on the southeast coi ner of Market and ! Broad streets." explained the ex-Assem- I btyman, as he stroked his mustache. "The corner-stone will be paid for by that $10,000 fund sent by General Grubb to carry Essex county for the .Republicans." Joseph Atkinson said that the new com pany would erect a fine building. "On the roof we will have a statue of liberty and a life-size figure of General Grubb declining a second term," said Mr. Atkinson. Fred Leônard, law partner of Frank I McDermit, wus more prosaic than the I others. "The report is rather premature," j said he, "but who knows what may come j to pass?" ,'Of course," McDermit said on a second I inr/ii'viow "mv friwiH Mr Af.Viiidnn ία rn ι be made a Clerk of the Board of Free holders. That's part of the new con tract." Some people say that there is coolness j between Trefz and McDermit, which bids j fair to sever their present relations. A Home for the Winter. James Ray was arraigned before Jus tice Wanser this morning for drunken ness. "Where's your overcoat?" asked the justice of the shivering prisoner. "Home," was the replv. "Where's your home?"
